Hey guys, don't post too much here but like the forum. Have an issue with low speed (5-10 mph) when turning left only. Took it to Dodge and they couldn't replicate it, of course. Seems to happen a little more when it is cold. Any advice would help. Thx
The Nag trans makes a wheeeping noise when turning sometimes especially after going from drive to reverse or vice versa but typically happens when the car is warmed up. If this is the problem here, Chrysler is aware and is working on a fix. Does it in the Jeeps too. How do I know this? I had it diagnosed last week when I took it in for the Getrag whine.

It's not that I really needed 370 hp...but having 150+ hp riding shotgun at a moment's bidding w/o a 6000 rpm moonshot is what makes me feel like I'm in the right car for me. The roar of a v8 seals the deal!

Also, I forgot to mention, I've observed a grinding like noise while turning in a different car that was actually one of the front tires every so slightly scraping against the plastic liner in the fender. That was on utterly stock-sized tires (but evidently the sport tire/suspension pkg for that car). You would never think it would make a "grinding sound", but evidently that is what a rough rubber tire making light contact with unsupported plastic sounds like.
When it's cold out, and my car is cold, I get a really mild grinding or vibration when I turn the wheel to the left. I had it in my 06 ram as well. It's one of those quirky things I guess. I've not seen any ill effects from it.
